Some days I love the big floppy cowls; some days I love the more snug (but not tight) cowls. They’re probably the thing I’m most excited about getting to wear in MO. I wear sweaters a good bit in Texas because we rarely need a coat. In MO, I’ll wear more coats probably than sweaters. I don’t think I was making a lot of sweaters when we lived there before so I don’t know.
I wear wool socks all year in Texas so I will there too. I wear fingerless mitts rather than full gloves in Texas but I may wear more full gloves there. I won’t make them because I do not like making fingers. I could wear mittens. They’re ok to make.
But, cowls . . I just have hardly worn them in Texas.
This one is made out of Loopy Solids, a yarn that I loved but it’s been discontinued. I still have a lot of it because I really stocked up when I knew I could no longer get it. The colors were great. It’s fingering weight but substantial enough for colorwork. I sure wish it was still around.
I could see myself making another one of these cowls . . some day.

I love the color of that pink and burgundy one. I myself would have no use for it–first I don’t like things clingy on my neck. Second it just looks hot. But being in Texas and a lot further south than you, it is rare that we wear a coat–and even then don’t need much more–never even had one of those scarf things–I always thought a scarf was something you put on your dresser or chest of drawers, didn’t know you could wear it around your neck–now I remember the thing nylon ones you wore on your head to keep the wind from blowing it–but not a heavy knitted/crocheted thingy.

This is beautiful. I can see why you love it.
What fun, putting 6 colors together. I’ll bet that took you more than a minute.
Not knowing anything about knitting, that looks like a fairly easy but still fun pattern. I wouldn’t be surprised if you make another.
That cowl is gorgeous. 🙂
What is the name of the pattern
I would be interested in the names of the pattern
